Will Ferrell, known mostly as a funnyman, plays an uncharacteristically dark role in 'Everything Must Go' – an alcoholic who, in the same day, loses his wife and job. His belongings are thrown out on the front lawn, where he is forced to live illegally and much to the annoyance of his neighbors. Ferrell's character isn't entirely sympathetic, but he embarks on a bumpy journey of self-discovery that calls on his courage.

Ferrell unveiled the film at the Toronto International Film Festival, where Moviefone caught up with him.
